It is very challenging to overcome boredom in fitness. The fact is running on a treadmill, lifting weights, and other pure fitness activities are mind-numbingly boring. It is an activity that you are doing for a result – not an activity you are doing because you enjoy it.
HOW IS MMA BENEFICIAL FOR YOUR HEALTH?
No contact fighting training: MMA is conducted in a non-contact environment with fitness benefits that martial artists enjoy and make them accessible to everyone.
It is a total body workout: MMA workouts are designed to incorporate practically every muscle of the body. As you kick, your legs become very strong. As you punch, your arms become equally strong. And, as you grapple, your core builds muscle.
MMA is more than just fitness: You can see improvements quickly with MMA Fitness. When you do MMA, you will notice that your skills improve faster. You become more aware of your own strength as drills become easier.
New style of workout: It doesn’t matter if you don’t know what dynamic stretches are, because your instructor does. Your instructor comes up with the workout, so you don’t have to.
Burn calories quickly: Grappling and striking put more muscles to use than running on a treadmill, cycling on a stationary bike, or even using the elliptical. Your core is almost always engaged, and the workout is continuous. You end up burning more calories in a shorter period of time, making your workout more time-efficient.
It is beyond cardio: MMA workouts are a type of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), which maximize the amount of calories you burn by combining the pathways into one workout.
Boosting self-confidence: MMA is one of the best combat sports for self-defence. In boxing, you learn how to strike while standing. MMA combines stand-up fighting, ground fighting, and takedowns. Therefore, learning all these skills boosts confidence.
Make friends and be part of a family: MMA is all about respect. You learn to respect your instructor, your training partners and your opponents. That respect forges a bond and everyone in the gym has a close relationship. The people you train with become family!
